What Is Prey?


Aliens have taken over the space station, and only you can stop them. Or, make that Yu. On May 5, 2017, Prey releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC – and, as Morgan Yu, you’ll be mankind’s only hope to stop the Typhon threat from destroying humanity.

Prey is the latest game from Arkane Studios, the team behind the multi-award-winning Dishonored series. Watch the latest trailer to get a deeper look at the Typhon aliens, Morgan’s unique powers and weapons, and the Talos I space station itself.

Embracing its signature style, Arkane is building what it’s calling an “open space station game,” complete with the studio’s characteristic freedom and player choice. “There are many layers to Prey,” says Creative Director Raphael Colantonio. “There’s the shooter aspect, but it’s also an RPG and an adventure. You’ll explore, you’ll fight, you’ll play with powers – both human and alien. You craft your playstyle based on the choices that you make.”

A sci-fi thriller set in an alternate future, Prey not only includes intense action but a deep story. As you fight the Typhon, you’ll also unravel the mystery behind your own identity and your role aboard Talos I. “Morgan is the key subject in an experiment that is meant to alter humanity forever,” says Lead Designer Ricardo Bare. “You awaken aboard a space station called Talos I, which is orbiting around the moon. But when you wake up – when you step out into the main lobby – you immediately see that things have gone terribly wrong. It’s up to you as the player to figure out: How did I get here? What’s going on? How do I survive? And how do I get off this space station?”
